Half of New York City is Poor

There are 2 comments on the Gawker story from Apr 21, 2013, titled Half of New York City is Poor. In it, Gawker reports that:

In a study that surprises almost no one, the Bloomberg administration has found that half of New York City residents are "poor" or "near-poor" meaning that they were "making less than 150 percent of the poverty threshold." This is a small rise in the amount of poor from 2009, when the recession officially ended.
